Music Management

Prepare to become one of the next generation of music industry leaders with this degree. You'll specialise in your areas of interest while gaining wider insight into the principles and strategies of management across the creative industries. The course is taught by the Department of Music and the Management School. It is suitable for those looking to launch a management career in the music industry and for music creators wishing to enhance their prospects of success. You can choose modules in management practices (finance, marketing, entrepreneurship) and specialise in several areas of arts management (festival management, music branding, audience development, arts funding). This means you can tailor the course to your strengths and interests, while your final dissertation project will take your knowledge and skills to the next level. Practical work is embedded in our course and we have close working relationships with a range of arts organisations, including Music in the Round, in a city with a thriving music and cultural scene. We have exceptional facilities and opportunities to support your learning, such as rehearsal, performance and practice spaces. Through the University of Sheffield Concerts Series you can get involved in staging events, and we support a local and international placement scheme. As the music industry rapidly changes, private and public sector organisations are looking for graduates who can bring a high degree of flexibility and critical insight. Our MA provides you with the essential knowledge, skills and experience you need to be a future leader in this environment.
